Dr Catrin Moore of St George’s University of London will be presenting a talk at the upcoming Alliance of the Prudent Use of Antimicrobials (APUA) AMR webinar titled: “Estimating the global burden of AMR and how this evidence is informing new studies.”
Dr. Moore led the Global Research on AntiMicrobial resistance (GRAM) project based in the Big Data Institute, University of Oxford. Partnered with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) and Tropical Medicine, they analysed global data to estimate the global burden of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Dr Moore is a member of the World Health Organization Advisory Group on Critically Important Antimicrobials (AG CIA) for Human Medicine and is a mentor for Fleming Fund Fellows in Eswatini. Dr. Moore works on studies to improve the use of interventions including antibiotic and diagnostic stewardship in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to reduce the unnecessary prescribing of antibiotics. Now based at St George’s, University of London she is an investigator on the Antimicrobial Resistance, Prescribing, and Consumption Data to Inform Country Antibiotic Guidance and Local Action (ADILA) project.
